ADJUSTING
CONTROL
SETTINGS
It is best to wait for 24 hours for the refrigerator to
cool down completely before before making any
adjustments to the temperature
settings. The initial
settings mentioned in SETTING THE CONTROLS
section should be correct for normal household
refrigerator use. The controls are set correctly when
milk or juice is as cold as you like and when ice
cream is firm.
The refrigerator control functions as the thermostat
for the entire appliance (refrigerator and freezer
sections). The colder the setting, the longer the
compressor will run to keep the temperature colder.
The freezer control adjusts the cold air flow from the
freezer to the refrigerator. Setting the freezer control
to a lower temperature
keeps more cold air in the
freezer compartment
to make it colder.
If you need to adjust temperatures
in the refrigerator
or freezer, start by adjusting the refrigerator and
allow 24 hours for the temperatures
to stabilize. If it
is still too warm or too cold, adjust the freezer
control.
Always remember to wait at least 24 hours
between adjustments.

See Installation section on pages 9 and 17.
MOTOR SEEMS TO RUN TOO MUCH
Check if...
Then...
The refrigerator that was replaced was an older
model.
The high efficiency compressor may cause your new
refrigerator to run more than your older one, but is still more
energy efficient than previous models.
The room temperature is hotter than normal.
The motor will run longer under warm conditions. At normal
room temperatures, expect your motor to run about 40% to
80% of the time. Under warmer conditions, expect it to run
even more often.
The door is opened often or a large amount of food
has just been added.
Adding food and opening the door warms the refrigerator.
It is normal for the refrigerator to run longer in order to cool the
refrigerator back down. See the Food Storage Guide section
on page 20. In order to conserve energy, try to get everything
you need out of the refrigerator at once, keep food organized
so it is easy to find and close the door as soon as the food is
removed.
The refrigerator was recently plugged in and the
refrigerator control was set correctly.
The refrigerator will take up to 24 hours to cool completely.
The refrigerator control is not set correctly for the
surrounding conditions.
See the Adjusting
The doors are not closed completely.
Push the doors firmly shut. If they will not shut all the way, see
DOORS WILL NOT CLOSE COMPLETELY on page 33.
The back cover is dirty.
A dirty back cover prevents air transfer and makes the motor
work harder. Clean the back cover. Refer to the Care and
Cleaning section on page 25-26.

Then...
The refrigerator is not level.
See Leveling and Door Alignment section on page 17.
Food packages are blocking the door open.
Rearrange food containers to clear door and door shelves.
The ice bin, crisper cover, pans, shelves, door bins
or baskets are out of position,
Push bins all the way in and put crisper cover, pans, shelves
and baskets into their correct positions. See the Using Your
Refrigerator section on pages 18-24.
The gaskets are sticking.
Clean the gaskets and the surfaces that they touch. Rub a thin
coat of appliance polish or kitchen wax on the gaskets after
cleaning.
The refrigerator wobbles or seems unstable.
Level the refrigerator. Refer to the Leveling and Door
Alignment section on page 17.
The doors were removed during product
installation and not properly replaced,
Remove and replace the doors according to the Removing
and Replacing Refrigerator handles and doors section on
pages 11-16, or call a qualified service technician.

above.
The door is opened often.
When the door is opened, warm, humid air is allowed in the
freezer, resulting in frost.
ICE HAS BAD TASTE OR ODOR
Check if...
Then...
The icemaker was recently installed.
Discard the first few batches of ice to avoid discolored or
bad tasting ice.
The ice has been stored for too long.
Throw away old ice and make a new supply.
The food has not been wrapped tightly in either
compartment,
Rewrap foods since odors may migrate to the ice if food is not
wrapped properly.
The water supply contains minerals such as sulfur.
A filter may need to be installed to eliminate taste and odor
problems.
The interior of refrigerator needs cleaning.
See Care and Cleaning
Ice storage bin needs cleaning.
Empty and wash bin. Discard old cubes.

DRAIN PAN
Then...
The refrigerator is defrosting.
The water will evaporate. It is normal for water to drip into the
defrost pan.
It is more humid than normal.
Expect that the water in the defrost pan will take longer to
evaporate. This is normal when it is hot or humid.

on.
Reverse osmosis water filtration system is
connected to your cold water supply.
Reverse osmosis filtration systems can reduce the water
pressure below the minimum amount (20 psi) and result in
icemaker issues.
Kink in the water source line.
A kink in the line can reduce water flow. Straighten the water
source line.
Large amount of ice recently has been
removed.
Allow 24 hours for ice maker to produce more ice.
The icemaker is not turned on.
Locate the icemaker on/off switch and confirm it is in the On (I)
position.
There is something on the ice-detecting
sensor.
Foreign substances or frost on the ice-detecting sensor can
interrupt ice production. Make sure the sensor area is clean at
all times for proper operation.
The temperature setting for the freezer is too
warm.
Below 0°F is the recommended temperature for the freezer
compartment for normal ice production. If the freezer
temperature is warmer, ice production will be affected.
The doors are opened often.
If the doors of the unit are opened often, the cold air will
escape which will prevent the unit from maintaining the set
temperature. Lowering the temperature can help, as well as
not opening the doors as frequently.
The doors are not closing properly.
If the doors are not properly closed, ice production will be
affected.
The ice compartment door is not closing
properly.
If the ice compartment door is not properly closed, ice
production will be affected. Make sure ice compartment door is
closed for proper operation.
Ultra Ice is not selected.
With this option, the cold air in the compartment is increased
as is ice production.

THE DOORS ARE DIFFICULT
TO OPEN
Check if...
Then...
The gaskets are dirty or sticky.
Clean the gaskets and the surfaces that they touch. Rub a thin
coat of appliance polish or kitchen wax on the gaskets after
cleaning.
The door is reopened within a short time after
having been opened.
When you open the door, warmer air enters the refrigerator.
As the warm air cools, it can create a vacuum. If the door is
hard to open, wait 5 minutes to allow the air pressure to
equalize, then see if it opens more easily.

Then...
The air vents are blocked. Cold air circulates from
the freezer to the fresh food section and back
again through air vents in the wall dividing the two
sections.
Locate air vents by using your hand to sense airflow and move
all packages that block vents and restrict airflow. (See air flow
diagram below).
The doors are opened often.
When the door is opened, warm humid air is allowed into the
refrigerator. The more the door is opened, the faster the
humidity builds up, and the more warm air the refrigerator must
cool. In order to keep the refrigerator cool, try to get everything
you need out of the refrigerator at once, keep food organized
so it is easy to find and close the door as soon as the food is
removed.
The control is not set correctly for the surrounding
conditions.
Refer to the Setting the Controls section on page 18.
Wait 24 hours for temperatures to stabilize or even out. If the
temperature is too cold or too warm, change the setting one
increment at a time.
A large amount of food has just been added to the
refrigerator or freezer,
Adding food warms the refrigerator. It can take a few hours for
the refrigerator to return to normal temperature.
The food is not packaged correctly.
Wrap food tightly and wipe off damp containers prior to storing
in the refrigerator to avoid moisture accumulation. If
necessary, repackage food according to the guidelines in the
Food Storage Guide section on page 20.
The doors are not closing completely.
See DOORS WILL NOT CLOSE COMPLETELY
The weather is humid.
In humid weather, air carries moisture into the refrigerator
when the doors are opened.
A self-defrost cycle was completed.
It is normal for droplets to form on the back wall after the
refrigerator self-defrosts.
